D.C.--The IAAB staff is excitedly counting down
the days to the first Iranian-American Leadership Camp, which will take place
the week of June 25-30, 2006 on Thompson
Island, Massachusetts. IAAB will be bringing together some of the
brightest and most accomplished young members of the Iranian-American community
for a week of friendship, learning, and fun!
We are thrilled to be able to
provide the next generation of Iranian-American leaders with this unique
opportunity. Our campers represent a wide variety of Iranian communities in the
States, and have been selected for their
excellence in an array of fields, from mastering the art of the santoor
to receiving honors in the sciences.
Campers will be working closely
with IAAB's Leadership Camp team of accomplished Counselors and Staff from
across the United
States, representing numerous prestigious
universities and diverse experiences. Our carefully selected team is trained in
leadership building, peer mediation, advocacy, and health education and have all
demonstrated their enthusiasm for leadership and the Iranian-American community
Nasim, a Counselor from
Oregan, was particularly mindful of the necessity for community building amongst
our youth. "Helping to develop Iranian-American youths into leaders ensures that
our community will have the resources it needs to function, grow and prosper,"
Camp will have a weblog (http://www.iranianalliances.org/blog/2006camp.htm)
that campers and staff will update regularly during the week. Stay in tune with us as the week
